These eye-catching concept renders of the Mate 30 Pro may act as a salve for Huawei fans with the company still embroiled in a trade war with Donald Trump and his US administration. Watch out for that huge camera bump though, it bites.

The tech world may be concentrating on the Pixel 4 and Google's decision to leak its own device, but these CAD concept renders of the Mate 30 Pro may have people's heads turning East. They are the work of Serbian CAD designer @PhoneIndustry_, who has taken the design of the Mate 20 Pro and P30 Pro and given them a 2019 twist.

The concept renders show the Mate 30 Pro with dual front-facing cameras, which are embedded beneath the display à la the Samsung Galaxy S10+. Visually, the front of the device is heavily Galaxy S10+ inspired with its curved display and minimal bezels. The back is an evolution of the Mate 20 Pro with its centred rear-facing camera housing, but @PhoneIndustry_ has added a fourth camera, which would presumably be a ToF sensor in line with recent flagship smartphone trends.

We expect Huawei to equip the Mate 30 Pro with a HiSilicon Kirin 985 SoC and an abundance of the latest camera hardware. The device should also feature an in-screen fingerprint scanner, an IR blaster and reverse wireless charging. The OS it will run is still up for dispute though with rumours circulating that Huawei is moving towards an AOSP-based offshoot of Android rather than the current branch of EMUI. Let us know in the comments what you think of the design and whether it could tempt you away from Apple, Google, Samsung and the rest.

I got my first smartphone aged 11, my first PC aged 12 and I have been tinkering with electronics ever since. I like to keep abreast of the latest news and technology, which inevitably leads me to switch my laptop and phone every few months. When I'm not writing for Notebookcheck, you will find me seeking out new coffee shops, bars and trying to find some hidden gems in record stores.
